Berlin. December 20. The C-iman government is compl-H.-!' silent as to when the blc.clr.de will ho raised or whether it' will bo raised at all until every iue-stic!i concerning the arbitra tion is settled. The acceritar.ee or the arbitration proposal after the blockade was begun is certainly not received with popular favor In Germany. General Yon Bcguawski. one of t;. foremost military writers contributes to the Taglie-h, Rundschau his views upon. the Monroe doctrine and argues that the withdr iwal of the blockade at this stage would show singular weakness. After alluding to the laio Prince Bismarck's expression that tic? Monroe doctrine was a "great piece or impudence." he ray?: "That was a true word. America is divid d into many states. In varieties cf race and lan guage she is hardly second to Europe. How can one assert th:M it his the right of int rfennce aad prctectioi over sn entire cruiiiiient and that it will tolerate only under certain condi tions any action howevjr jdst. or Eu ropean n.itioas against an American state.

CUBAN RECIPROCITY NOT A CERTAIN THING Strong Opposition to the Treaty De veloping in the Senate SomeJSenators Object on the Ground That There Ought to be no Tariff Tinkering. Others While Favoring Cuba Fear That the Treaty Proposed Would be the Begin ning of the Romeval of all Tariff Barriers. Germany for Instance Wculd Within a Month ask the Same Treatment That Would be Accorded Cuba. Washington, Ieccmber 20. Consider able opfosition is developing to the ratification of the ('roan reciprocity treaty now j-neling in the senate. It is not taking ejuite the form of opposi tion to Cuban legislation that It took last spring, but it is sufficient In sulj Ktanee to give concern to the friends o. the tleaty. From time to time as opportunity of f ( rs, the president is discussing the matter with senators. particularly those who are known te have objected to the enactment of legislation extend ing tariff concessions to the Cuban republic. Several weeks ago it appear ed that the treaty when presented te the senate would be ratifieel without difficulty, but some senators are now taking as strong grounds against Cue treaty as th'-y took against the legis lation proposed at the last session or congicsK. These senators are or two classes, thos? who are opposed or. pr'm dple to any "tariff 'inkering," and those who represent the states whose prcdue-ts may be affected by conces sions to Cuba by the pending treaty. The senators of the first class might ! b? induced to support the treaty Inas much as it does not involve In their view an attack em the system cf pro t c-tion. were it not for their apprel;e-n-sion that the ratification of the Cuban treaty may lead to a demand from other countries that they, im,, be ac TELEGRAPHERS Hopeful of Reestablishing Friendly Relations With the Santa Fe.

Correspondence solicited, and information cheerfully given. corded special tariff concessions by the United State-s. It has been indicated to the president that in the event of th? ratifie-ation of the Cuban treaty a de mand may be expeced from Germany within thirty days for concessions simi lar to these accorded to Cuba. The most distinct desire of the Ger man emperor, it is pointed out, ; for the extension of the foreign commerce of his empire. He, of course, regards Cuba as a nation foreign to the United States and as far as that point is con cerned, on all fours with Germany. If tariff concessions are granted to Cuba, Germany, under the most favored na tion cl-iusc-. will request that she b." given similar concessions. That re quest may take the form of a demand almcst. If it be net granted, fear J. e-xpre-ss-d that Germany many initlat? legislation that will be inimicai to th, industrial development of this country so far as Germany is concerned, even if it should not cut tail Amerie-an com merce already established in Germany and its jeossessions. The same argument is applied to other countries. Germany being use! simply as an example of what may b-" expected of all the; great foreign na tions with whic h the l'nited States has extensive commercial relations. The president, it is understood, le lieves that the pending treaty with Cuba will be ratified. and Wm. Lloyd, the latter being Mr. Stratton's secretary during his life, were the only witnesses examined and they dimply testified to the executing ami the signing of the will. The at tc rneys for the contestants offered r.o evidence in support cf their protest and contented themselves with cross ex amining the witnesses. As soon as th- eeiurt announced his decision they gave notice of a.i appeal to the district court. STEREOPTICON BLEW UP. Chicago. Dec-ember 20.
